Negative Declaration

Erie County - The New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Buffalo Harbor State Park Boat Launch, Site, and Utility Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a new 8 lane boat launch, rehabilitation and reconfiguration of the existing parking lot located south of the marina, reconstruction of the southern park entrance, reconstruction of multi-use paths to the east and south of the parking lot, and landscaping. The project will also include water and electrical utility upgrades to accommodate the replacement and upgrade of the existing docks. At the Gallagher Pier area, a one foot cover of fine gravel will be placed over the existing material down to the waterline to provide the New York State Department of Health recommended buffer thickness. This is consistent with the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 375 as those requirements are protective of public health for passive recreational uses. The project is located at 1111 Fuhrmann Boulevard in the City of Buffalo, New York.

Wyoming County - The Village of Attica, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the Village of Attica Zoning Code Update will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a comprehensive revision to the Village of Attica Zoning Code. The previous code contained a total of three zoning districts; one residential, one commercial, and one industrial district. The proposed code consists of eight base districts. These include Low, Medium, and Multi-Family Residential Districts, Neighborhood Commercial, General Commercial, Village Center, Manufacturing, and Institutional Districts.

The intent of the 2015 Zoning Code Update is to preserve the traditional development pattern of the Village while guiding future investment that compliments the community's existing character and is consistent with the Village's Comprehensive Plan. As the individual development proposals are advanced a more detailed SEQR process will be completed for each project as required by New York State Law. In summary, this Code Update will have a positive impact on the community, its character, and its environment. The project is located throughout the Village of Attica, New York.
